Andy Cohen is hitting the airwaves with an exclusive SiriusXM channel, SiriusXM announced Wednesday. The Watch What Happens Live host will executive produce the channel, Radio Andy, set to launch later this month.
Cohen – who guest-edited an issue of Entertainment Weekly earlier this summer – will host two weekly shows: Andy Cohen Live, a two-hour live show set to dive into the latest pop culture news (comedian Carol Burnett is slated to appear for the premiere episode), and Andy’s Divas, a music show featuring musical guests. The Bravo staple will also host a daily interview series titled Deep & Shallow with Andy Cohen, which has booked a variety of guests for its first month including Madonna, Connie Britton, Laverne Cox and Judd Apatow.
In addition to Cohen’s shows, Radio Andy will feature several daily live shows hosted by Sandra Bernhard (Sandyland), Bevy Smith (Bevelations), and Lance Bass (Dirty Pop with Lance Bass).
“SiriusXM has given me the ultimate in uncensored creative freedom: a 24/7 channel to do whatever I want with whomever I choose. I’ve spent the last few months putting together an amazing lineup of creative and talented personalities with more to come,” Cohen said in a release. “I am so excited for listeners to get to know another side of myself, sometimes deep and often shallow, and dive into what’s happening in the world with unique and singular voices like Sandra Bernhard, Bevy Smith and Lance Bass, each entertaining forces on the pulse of pop culture who are also a crazy good time. As an aside, I’m thrilled to be next to my hero Howard Stern on the SiriusXM dial.”
Radio Andy (channel 102) is slated to premiere Sept. 14.
